Lone Star Blues
By George Strait
CD: Here For A Good Time - 2011
Tabbed By Larry Mofle
9/10/2011


     E
At a truck stop in San Angelo
        A
I saw a billboard 'bout this rodeo
     B7
This weekend out in El Paso
                  E
So I signed up to ride

I drew a bull called Original Sin
Heard he'd killed a couple of men
Figured this was somethin' I could win
'Cause the devil's on my side

I was havin' myself one hell of a ride
But I ended up disqualified
That ole bull just up and died
Before they blew the whistle


Chorus:
          E  
With them North Texas blues
            A
Thought I'd paid all my dues
          B7
Then them South Texas blues
                      E 
Told me son you ain't through
        E
Had the East Texas blues
        A
An' the West Texas too
          B7
I've done all I know to do
                                                   E
Tryin' to lose, tryin' to lose these old Lone Star Blues


I got laid off at Brown and Root
Then on my way back to Cut 'N Shoot
I lost my wristwatch and my boots 
Shootin' dice with a dude from Houston
Well, there ain't no jobs here workin' cattle
So I got on part-time hauling gravel
With some outfit from Seattle
Down here building custom homes

Chorus

Instrumental break

Well, I gassed up my truck an' I packed my clothes
Turned in my key and I hit the road
I said Cowtown's where I'll go
You never know, I might get lucky
Well I got a friend there turnin' knobs
At a place called Billy Bob's
Said he thought he could get me a job there
Working as a bouncer
First night on the job was just insane
Some old boy got all deranged
Hit me in the head with a Harley chain
To this day my ears still ring

Chorus

I've done all I know to do, tryin' to lose,
Tryin' to lose these lone star blues
